"Bora Bora" is a 1968 film directed by Ugo Liberatore and starring Corrado Pani, Haydée Politoff, Doris Kunstmann. The film tells of the young Roberto (Pani), who left Italy for the Polynesian islands to be reunited with his wife Marita (Politoff), learns, once landed in Papeete, the woman went to live with the indigenous Manì. Cause his unnecessary efforts to win her back, Roberto tries to understand the reasons for her choice, until, well disposed towards a "ménage a trois", he decides to stay and gets build a hut. Pretending to watch the effusions of Marita with Manì provokes the disgust of the Polynesian who ditches both. They, again attracted towards each other from the perspective of turbid relationship, they decide to take the plane and go back to Italy. For "Bora Bora" Piero Piccioni has written one of the most intriguing scores of his long career: an OST all linked to ethnic sounds of Polynesia regarding rhythms and instrumentation and fascinating mystical atmospheres performed by the orchestra and choir of Cantori Moderni di Alessandroni that, in pure Piccioni Sound, perfectly make the eroticism of the story. Modernity is given by the shake dance titled "Blue Rhythm Festival" which takes us back in time when this rousing dance music was in vogue. At the time Cinevox released an album with 10 tracks in mono (MDF 33/10) with a duration of 33:55. In 1996 the Japanese label SLC re-issued it for the first time on CD (SLCS - 7166) with five extra tracks with a total of 44:12. In 2012 Quartet Records in Spain printed a double CD including the Italian version by Piccioni on CD 1 and the Usa version by Les Baxter on CD 2(77:15) for the US. For this Italian reissue on CD we have added an alternate take of the shake theme that brings the CD to run 78:37 taken from the mono master tapes of the original recording session.
